One Week till Commit Number 17?
I talked with Keyon Brown on Tuesday morning and he said he plans on being in Athens on Friday afternoon and will bring most of his family. It will be his official visit and he will likely be the only prospect taking his official this weekend. He said he now plans to announce on September 26th and he will not take any other official visits before he announces. I asked him if he planned on taking any other official visits after he announces his decision and he says no. He was originally scheduled to announce his decision on his birthday (September 28th) but says he will now announce on the Thursday before.
The writing is on the wall for Brown to be the 17th commitment for the Bulldogs. From what I have been told by multiple people, he has already committed to the University of Georgia, he is just wanting to announce his decision on his birthday week. Brown is a physical outside linebacker that explodes off the edge. He has a chance to compete for a spot immediately in Athens with his pass rushing ability. He is very different than the outside linebackers UGA has on campus right now. Floyd, Vasser, Stripling and a few others have the speed and quickness but lack the upper body strength at this point, but Keyon has it all.
The only true weakness I see in his game is the lack of experience standing up in the 3-4 defense, but that will be a quick adjustment. He is a “stronger” Jarvis Jones type player and I believe the Bulldog Nation is going to be very excited to add Brown on September 26th!!!
Early Visitor List for UGA-LSU Game:

Trenton Thompson (Says he could be in attendance)
4-Star WR Schedules Official Visits
Josh Malone has been very quiet when discussing his college plans. This past week he finally scheduled his official visits and when he announced them, he will be seeing the Georgia Bulldogs two weeks in a row starting on September 28th. He will take his official visit to Athens for the LSU game and will be in Knoxville on his official when the Dawgs travel to Tennessee to take on the Vols. He will also take an official visit to Florida State, Vanderbilt and likely Clemson in October and November.
The next two weeks (starting on September 28th) will be huge for the 4-star WR from Station Camp. Georgia and Tennessee have been two of his favorites for quiet sometime and with a good OV to Athens and a big win over Tennessee in Knoxville it could go a long way in deciding Malone’s future. As it stands right now, I believe Georgia is the favorite with Tennessee coming on the strongest.
The 6’2 receiver from Station Camp is a player than can be a game-changer at the next level. He does not shy away from contact and doesn’t mind catching the ball over the middle against big time linebackers……he also is a deep threat and can go up and get the ball. At this point in his career, he reminds me over a taller, more physical Malcolm Mitchell. When he gets the ball in his hands, he is very elusive and is hard to tackle in open space one-on-one. Malone has a chance to be a standout receiver at the next level, and the Bulldogs are looking very good for him right now.
He will be an early enrollee so he will likely make a decision in the next 2 months on where he will spend the next 4 years of his life. His parents will also be in attendance when he visits on the 28th!!!

wow, are those numbers real for Kendall Gant? I sure would like to see the tape of those games. BRB, are there any highlights of him from this season so far? Also, do you know if he will be ok academically? I've heard that he may be on the border when it comes to academics but not 100% sure.
I also feel that if Rashaan Evans didn't have to play with his hand in the ground dude would be a 5* easy.
I really wish that we could get McMillan, but I am in agreement with BRB. My source from down there says that he has a handler and it will not be UGA.
I've read elsewhere that DJ Smith is unlikely to come to us.
Do we have any other options for additional 2014 DBs? I've seen some conjecture elsewhere, and asked if the Sanders kid (who is a teammate of one of our commits or remaining targets) has looked like a good possibility for an offer if a spot opens up.
Also, does Bostick moving to ILB open up another DB spot on the roster and close out a spot on the roster for all ILBs except Dukes and Raekwon?
Great info BRB. Yeah I'm pumped now where is that 300lb guy that works here I'm going to give him a good old fashioned arse whipping!!!
@HomeGrown82 Not a fan of his attitude - he is taking his official and we to show him how it will really be - we need to WOW him. We have other guys that are more important and that is Evans, Carter, Shaw, Malone, and Sharpe.
@007Dawg=Cocks totin' an arse whuppin' There is a chance......I think he would be a good backup plan for sure. Rogers has made a name for himself quickly in the state of Georgia
@theoriginalpitbull Winfree, Mike Rogers.........still getting a visit from Nick Ruffin also
